U.S. wary of rapprochement between Japan, Russia

Yomiuri wrote that although Washington outwardly appears to be taking a wait-and-see attitude toward Putin’s Japan trip in December, it is wary of rapid reconciliation between Tokyo and Moscow since it may disrupt G7 unity in applying pressure on the Putin administration over the situation in Ukraine. DOS spokesperson Kirby said: “The U.S. is not concerned or worried about bilateral relations between Russia and Japan…. But nothing has changed about our view that it’s still not business as usual with Russia.”
